Best meals thus far on our Queensland holiday! We have visited Brisbane and Surfers Paradise also. Service was excellent, meals were gorgeous and we were able to use our Entertainment Book (app) to have 1 meal for free up to $50! Would definitely return.

Nice restaurant on the esplanade. I had grilled fish which was excellent and Hubbie had the risotto. He thought just okay but had better as very soggy with the rice. He will try something different next time.
